The following commands are a good alternative to perform the common actions for Managing Wireless Network Profiles in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 thus avoiding the use of third-party software.

To Manage Wireless Network Profiles, perform the following procedures:

Open a run box window (or press win+R) then type cmd to open Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 CLI.

To see stored wireless profiles in your Windows, type:

  • netsh wlan show profiles

This command will show a list of saved profiles of your connected WLAN devices. Then you’ll need to either write/save/memorize the profile name that you want to change.

To see the stored key (WPA/WEP/etc) of a specific profile:

  • netsh wlan show profiles name=[profile name] key=clear

You’ll find the key content under security settings.

To delete a stored profile:

  • netsh wlan delete profile name=[profile name]

This will delete the stored profile of every WLAN interface. If you want to delete the profile of a specific WLAN interface, you need to use the following:

  • netsh wlan delete profile name=[profile name] interface=[interface name]
